To begin, my husband decided he would do my water changes on Thursday that I was going to do Wednesday night. I conceded, skipped doing it and let him do them the next day. Friday I come home and Hornet is breathing hard so I ask my husband some questions about his water change. Apparently he didnt add additional conditioner. I was mad to say the least. So I add stress coat. No improvement with Hornet.
I change his water Saturday hoping this will help. No!
Sunday I QT him in a 1/2 gallon, Epsom salt (he looked a liitle bloated), Prime, and IAL I had premixed. I changed the water yesterday with the premade mixture.
Today I get home and there is stringy whitish clear stuff hanging from where he poops and there is a bunch in the bottom of the QT. He is still huffing and puffing. The QT is floating in his divided 10 gallon which is heated to 80.
I haven't fed him since Saturday and doubt he would eat anyway. I thought he was developing dropsy but now I don't know. I have had him for 2 months. He came from Walmart in a icky cup. He is a very large VT and has always been active until Friday.
I don't know what to do anymore. He just seems to be getting worse. :(
